The Painted Turtle

The Painted Turtle, comprised of a 173-acre site with a state-of-the-art medical facility called the Well Shell, is located just north of Los Angeles in Lake Hughes, CA. The Painted Turtle opened its gates in 2004 and has since served more than 45,000 children and family members through their year-round camp programs. They hold 8 medical condition-specific Summer Sessions for the affected children, 10 medical condition-specific Family Weekends for the affected children and their family members, and 2 Day Camps where all campers and conditions they serve are invited to participate. Their organization makes turtle pillows for each camper to take home after their session. This serves as a wonderful memento of their time at camp.
